Add course deadlines to your calendar

Add course deadlines to your calendar app to keep track of upcoming assignments. You can use the calendar sync option with Apple calendar, Google calendar, and any other calendar app that supports .ics files.

If you reset your deadlines, the deadlines in your calendar will automatically change. If applicable to your course, any live events will also sync with your calendar.
